A Satin Gown Receives the Heritage Select

When we first received Bonnie’s gown, we knew we were going to be extra careful.  With delicate appliques of bead-work, crystals, and stones from the straps to the bodice and down the train, this beautiful dress was very delicate. Made of synthetic satin and with a veil with satin trimming, Bonnie’s gown was gorgeous! Unfortunately, like most dresses, there were small stains on the skirt and a dirty hemline. The dress also had some make-up and tanning lotion inside of the bodice, under the arms, and on the straps. We were able to...

From Market street to Treasure Island, that dress traveled well – and had the dirt to show for it! More about Nikki’s gown Nikki Marciano Moriarty on Saturday,...
